Barack Obama Ate Dog, Mitt Romney Supporter Proclaims!

by at . Comments

Mitt Romney's campaign is fighting back in the War on Dogs, excerpting a passage from President Obama's memoir in which he admits eating one as a kid.

The Daily Caller's Jim Treacher wrote a blog post with an excerpt from Dreams From My Father in which Obama writes of eating dog as a boy in Indonesia.

"With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy)," writes Obama.

Romney, Obama

Treacher brought out the excerpt as a way of responding to a very odd, old story that has haunted Romney since the Boston Globe first reported it in 2007.

The story goes like this: In 1983, Romney strapped the family dog's crate to the roof of the car for a 12-hour drive from Massachusetts to Canada.

On the trip, the dog, an Irish Setter named Seamus, suffered the "runs," as Ann Romney put it this week. Her husband coolly pulled over to hose off the dog and the car, then kept driving, with the dog back in the crate on the roof.

When the anecdote came out, Alabama resident Scott Crider launched an online group called Dogs Against Romney, which now has 48,000 fans on Facebook and has sought to keep the Seamus story in the news this year.

Eating dog meat 40-plus years ago in Indonesia may be less unusual than Seamus' 12-hour roof ride in America, but conservative media have seized on the story.

"Say what you want about Romney, but at least he only put a dog on the roof of his car, not the roof of his mouth," Treacher wrote, defending his post.

"And whenever you bring up the one, we’re going to bring up the other."

Mitt Romney has all but wrapped up the GOP's contentious nomination process and will face off with Obama for the presidency in November's election.

Expect to hear a lot more about Seamus and Indonesia before then.

Which dog story is worse?

I don't condone eating of dogs. It is a worldwide issue I have been following for a long time, but how can you idiots condemn a man for something he did when he was barely conscious of his actions??!! Obama was fed this when he was 6 years old fools!! Romney on the other hand irresponsibly transported his dog atop a car when he was an ADULT!! Romney is so low. Typical GOP propaganda that blind fools follow. Pathetic!

When Rommney is in the *Now What* mode, he can fantacize and as usualy turn something into EVIL. Because he was so NEGLIGENT by locking his dog on the roof of his car, going 70mph, and he GOT CAUGHT, now, he is going to look at himself as the (LOSER), so he is going into the ATTACK mode. I expcted this from him, cuz all I had to hear from him in his speech during the campaign, *I Love To Fire People* and left it at that. He didn't give ANY reasons, so that is up to us, the voters to decide. He is NOT presidential material, and changes his mind from one week to the next on alot of DIFFERENT issues. He is VERY VERY rich alright, but the other TAG behind his name is **UNDEPENDABLE**.

It amazes me how the republicans try to distort stories to make their guy look better, what a joke!!! Are they truly trying to say a child who ate a dog (which I'm sure is not uncommon in indonesia) is worse than a man, supposedly someone who should know better, can be compared at the same level?? What Romney did was implorable!!! There is no excuse for what he put the beautiful dog thru!! I thought I just didn't like him before this now he disgusts me!!

Silver spoon in his mouth? Nope the Kenndy's bought them all. The only spoon Mitt has in his pocket is the one he needs to dig our country out of this hell. Thanks Obama, for the gas prices too.
